see Art

Today prompted by article on deafblind artist Arthur Ellis. He creates by seeing in his head not by looking at the paper. He cannot see the art he creates but others enjoy. I could learn from the way he has taken his brain over compensating and turned a perpetual nightmare into something positive.  His world now populated sometimes by strange images and bizarrely cartoonish apparitions. Hallucinations which at first were terrifying but he  now accepts are his mind playing tricks and not to be feared. He gains pleasure from what he does rather than focus on what he has lost and cannot see.

So, to tame those inner demons I will speak to them firmly but not get into a debate. I will let them influence tapping these keys but I will not let them stop me living my life.

Have a good day
